Merion Tribute House




The Merion Tribute House is a beautiful space to invite your family and friends to celebrate your wedding day. Bridal couples have walked through these arches to greet their guests and celebrate their nuptials since 1924, so the space will bring a charming history and elegance to your special day. Outdoor ceremonies can be accommodated anywhere on our eight-acre estate, typically on the front lawn where guests can admire the bride's entrance and processional from the Great Doors. Indoor ceremonies, whether large or small, can be held either in the gorgeous ballroom or the more intimate Legion Room—both offering an air of romance to the space and ceremony. After your “I Dos,” you and your guests will be able to move the celebration to the other spaces in the house. With its open floor plan, your guests will be able to mingle in the open space while retaining the intimate atmosphere of a private home. The warm and inviting space is ideal to invite your guests to eat, drink, and dance, and the balcony is a favorite place for brides to toss their bouquets and for couples to pose for pictures. This castle-like venue is perfect for the fairy-tale wedding of your dreams!
